ON A NATIONAL AVERAGE, COMMUNITY COLLEGE STUDENTS SAVE $11,377 ON 60 CREDITS, THE EQUIVALENT OF A TWO-YEAR PROGRAM. IN COMPARISON, STUDENTS IN NEW JERSEY WHO CHOOSE TO ATTEND A COMMUNITY COLLEGE AND THEN TRANSFER TO A FOUR-YEAR COLLEGE OR UNIVERSITY TO EARN A BACHELOR’S DEGREE SAVE $20,993 ON THE COST OF 60 CREDITS.

TO CALCULATE THESE DATA, STUDENT LOAN HERO RESEARCHED COLLEGE CREDIT COSTS ACROSS THE NATION AND COMPARED THE COST OF 60 CREDITS AT A TWO-YEAR PUBLIC COLLEGE TO A FOUR-YEAR PUBLIC COLLEGE. MOST PUBLIC TWO-YEAR COLLEGES ARE 60 PERCENT MORE AFFORDABLE THAN PUBLIC FOUR-YEAR COLLEGES, BUT NEW JERSEY COMMUNITY COLLEGE TUITION IS APPROXIMATELY 70 PERCENT LESS THAN ITS COUNTERPART.

AT CCM, EFFECTIVE SUMMER 2017, TUITION FOR A 12-CREDIT SEMESTER IS $1,500.
